If you long to sit behind his desk, the neck moves fore and aft to operate a computer keyboard or tilting the head to receive calls while you are typing can cause muscle tension near the collar bone and can cause permanent imbalance.

The neck does not move itself in the functioning of the movement. This section is supported by the shoulder muscles, especially the trapezius, the part that connects the neck and shoulders.

When moving around, the discs between the vertebrae expanded and contracted like a sponge. In this condition the fresh blood and nutrients well supplied. But when we sit squashed part of this disc evenly. Collagen hardening around the tendons and ligaments.

The entire upper body rests on the ischial tuberosity (sitting bones). The burden rests on the spine when sitting 40% greater than when standing.
